This book of poems brings us as close as we can get to how [Dickinson] presented her work. Sparing us the task of deciphering the poet’s sometimes challenging handwriting & presenting intriguing variants, this edition demonstrates why generations of writers have been galvanized by Dickinson. Closer than previous editions to Dickinson’s wishes, priorities & personality, Emily Dickinson’s Poems: As she preserved them calls for no redundant plays, films, novels, or warbling. What remains is lightning bolts of language akin to the Trouville’s of Arthur Rimbaud & other powerful magicians of verses.
